This was waiting for me when I got in tonight. Thanks so much for sharing, life is a bit manic at the moment but I will try to get to it soon.

Just finished this book, it was pretty hard going but I managed!! Which is more than I can say about 100 years of solitude!!

I didn't really feel anything for the main characters Fermina seemed undecisive and cruel and Florentino seemed like a bit of a wet blanket.

What I did like however was the discussion of Fermina's marriage the ups and downs that come with living and loving a man for so long. With a lot of my friends getting married this summer it is something we have all been thinking about.

Thank you for sharing - my copy has ended up a bit battered but I will see if anyone else is interested in it.

This is a wish granting RABCK from the very generous Ashleigh4985. Thank you very much. I am excited it is a World Book Night Copy! But now I have seen the list of WBN Books, I want to read them all too. I will read it soon and BookCross it onwards.

I wanted to read this book as it appears on a few lists that I am trying to read my way through (to diversify what I read).

Having also read One Hundred Years of Solitude for the same reason, left me beginning this book with dread! I didn't get One Hundred Years of Solitude and found it rather confusing and hard to follow.

I was really rather relieved to discover that was (generally) not the case with this book. I found it an interesting journey looking at peoples relationships. I think there are many accurate observations of both are contained amongst the pages of this book.

Having said all that tho, it is a pretty intense read. It took me far longer that a book of it's size normally would! I feel rather relieved to have finished it.

Now, just have to find the next vicitm for this book...

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This poor little book got a little more battered. So my boyfriend lovingly patched it up with clear book covering this morning.

I gave it to his sister to read and keep moving this lunch time.

Happy Travels Little Book!
